Disciples of Christ Historical Society Board receives Carson’s resignation

The Disciples of Christ Historical Society has accepted the resignation of Dr. Glenn Thomas Carson as President of the Society, effective July 31, 2014.  Carson, a church-historian from Georgia, has served the society since 2005. During Carson’s tenure the society advanced its digital presence, increasing services to over 100 countries. The tenure also saw many enhancements to the historic Thomas W. Phillips building in Nashville.

Board Chair Arnold Nelson commented that he is grateful for Glenn’s service and looks forward to the organization’s future serving the Stone-Campbell movement.

During the immediate interim, the Rev. Dr. Todd Adams, Associate General Minister and Vice President will serve as President. Adams’ leadership will allow the board time to assess the fiscal health and future service of the organization, while conserving resources. The society temporarily closed the July 4th week and plans to reopen by the end of July.

All requests for research will be filled once the building reopens.

Questions regarding the transition should be directed to Adams at tadams@disciples.org.
